Anthony J. Pansini, E.E., P.E brings to this timely new publication more than 50 years of engineering and management experience in the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of electrical transmission and distribution systems. He holds several patents and has authored numerous articles for journals as Transmission & Distribution, Electrical World, and Electrical Engineering. He has authored other best selling books including Power Transmission & Distribution, Electrical Transformers & Power Equipment, as well as Engineering Economic Analysis Guidebook.
In his latest release, TRANSMISSION LINE RELIABILITY AND SECURITY, the impact of deregulation, the after effects of 9-11 are explored, as well as the interconnect of the electrical grids. Electric service has become a necessity, not only in the lives of individuals, but also in the operation of public services. Already military surveillance and protection has been extended to nuclear power installations and will probably be extended to large power generating facilities.
This timely book tackles both the problems of reliability caused by the deregulation of electric utilities, blackout conditions, and those of security created by the events of 9-11 in clear, precise terms. Drawing upon his extensive hands-on knowledge of power systems gained during many years as an engineer in the industry, Mr. Panasonic offers practical, innovative solutions to address these issues Â solutions based in the design, construction, maintenance and operation of transmission facilities. You'll gain a clearer understanding of the real effects of deregulation on the reliability of existing transmission systems, and benefit from an expert's view of what may be done to maintain or improve their reliability. Some phenomena occurring in electric theory are included, in non- or semi-technical terms, for the benefit of the non-engineer.
